ATLANTA (CBS46) -

An arrest has been made after a woman was found strangled to death in Fulton County back in December 2016.

Julia McTure was found dead in the living room of her apartment in the 1000 block of Hollywood Road on Dec. 31, 2016.

She was found dead by her 9-year-old grandson, according to a spokesperson with the Atlanta Police Department. 

Police say the medical examiner's office later said she was strangled to death.

On Wednesday, a homicide warrant was secured for Michael Lay, according to authorities. Lay was already in the Fulton County Jail on a probation violation.

Police say the homicide investigation is now closed.
